Character Information

Preston served the Camarilla in every Courtly position. He gets along unusually well with most Brujah despite his always-proper bearing and his mutually-antagonistic relationship with the Anarchs. Generally loathe to commit violence, he has been more willing to engage in it after several years of fighting the enemies of the California Camarilla. While rumor has it that he was once a vibrant and joyful young man, in more recent years he is cold and somber to a fault. He was destroyed defending his Praxis in 2011.

Known History

Preston is known to have been born in Pennsylvania before the War Between the States, and to have left the country for Oxford just before the fighting began. Embraced in England and undergoing his Accounting in Genoa, he eventually struck out on his own. Traveling through the Dark Continent and Asia, he eventually made his haven outside Calcutta, and after India gained independence, he made his haven in South Africa. When his Sire died in early 2006, Preston returned to the States and settled down in California for several years. Over the course of the last year, he has moved to Chicago where he quickly became Seneschal, and then Prince. He was destroyed defending his Praxis in 2011.
